House Speaker Boehner has reversed himself and now the republicans are set to defund Obamacare. They will be combining the defunding with the continuing resolution. This will not allow Harry to ignore the bill.
In what is seen as a major turn around, House Speaker John Boehner has announced that the House will move to defund Obamacare, while providing funding for the rest of the government, at least on a temporary basis. This will put pressure on Harry Reid and the senate democrats, who have been trying to convince voters that the republicans are trying to shut down the government.
This effectively ends the compromise Boehner had made with the democrats to try to sell his fellow republicans on the idea of funding the unpopular program. The bill that’s expected to be offered today, would tie the defunding of Obamacare with the continuing resolution, meant to keep the government running. The bill has about 80 cosponsors, with eleven new ones signing onboard yesterday alone.
